Syrian Women’s Sports Team In Mhardeh, Hama Fights Takfiri Barbarism By Continuing To Play And Continuing To Live

by Jonathan Azaziah

If you asked Syrians 6 years ago if they thought that playing sports would one day be considered an act of resistance key to overthrowing a Zionist project targeting our region, they would’ve laughed in your face. Hysterically. But, as odd and upsetting as it may sound, that is exactly the case at this current time. Say salaam to the Women’s Sports Team of Mhardeh in the Hama countryside. By doing what they do–playing volleyball, basketball and handball–and taking such photos, these courageous women are taking their lives in their hands. Why, you inquire? Why would gorgeous and gifted athletes like these have their very existence put at risk by virtue of their profession?

The Assads visited with the nuns and orphans of the Monastery and spent the day eating, laughing, snapping photos, unwrapping gifts and just generally enjoying the holy occasion. “God bless you!” is what Bashar and Asma were hit with when they first entered the Monastery, and as they made their way down into the courtyard where they were adorably mobbed by loving children, they were also told by the nuns, “Now we are truly feeling the holiday spirit!” ‘Twas one of those moments in which you realize that these individuals, Dr. Assad and First Lady Asma, truly are FOR the people, OF the people and BY the people. This is the kind of popular support that cannot be bought, nor staged, nor forced. One simply has it or one does not. Clearly the Assads ABSOLUTELY have it.
